Women's Tennis Have Another Tough Day At the Pac-10 Championships

April 23, 2004

Ojai, CA - The Arizona State Women's Tennis Team continued on in the Pac-10 championships Saturday afternoon with three duos competing in the first and second rounds of doubles.

It proved to be another tough day for the Devils as none of the duos made it out of the second round.

Up first in the Main Draw were Wendy Pilecka and Cindy Sureephong facing the No. 8-ranked Dianne Hollands and Maja Mlakar of Arizona, who quickly shutdown the Devils with a 8-4 win.

Following them was the high point for the Devils as Lauren Colalillo and Kady Pooler took down Kasia Jakowlew and Debbie Larocque of Arizona in a 8-6 match, advancing them to the second round.

What was waiting for them in the second round however was the No. 13th-ranked duo of Jieun Jacobs and Raquel Kops-Jones of Cal, who handed the Devil duo a tough loss of 8-3.

In the Invitational Doubles Draw Sabrina Capannolo and Rebecca Rankin had a bye in the first round, so they faced Mugette Ahn and Saskia Nauenberg of Washington, who they barely fell to in a 9-8(4) loss.

The Pac-10 championships finish up tomorrow with sole Devil Sabrina Capannolo fighting to stay alive in the Invitational Singles Draw Quarterfinals against Jessica Shu of Cal in the Semifinals.
